Sainsbury Memorial Garden

Client: Metropolitan Cemeteries Board

Ecoscape created a culturally sensitive contemplative garden within the Fremantle Cemetery.


The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board manages and maintains a number of cemetery and memorial garden sites around the Perth Metropolitan Area. The character of the cemeteries is defined by the era and the environment the cemetery was created. They cater for a diverse cultural population depending on the dominant cultural demographics within each region. The MBC has developed each cemetery with a different character, offering a range of options for burial.

MCB engaged Ecoscape to prepare a master plan for the Sainsbury Memorial Gardens located within the Fremantle Cemetery. Following the master plan preparation the MCB requested Ecoscape undertake detailed design and documentation of the proposed treatments. The design incorporated curved walls for memorial plaques, memorial gardens and areas for quiet reflection with sculptural and interpretive elements. Construction of the project was completed in 2010.
